Westminister Hall Wedding in Winona Lake, Indiana

Emily and Ian’s wedding at Westminister Hall in Winona Lake, Indiana was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend full of so many amazing weddings. Everything about their wedding day yesterday was perfect, but nothing was better than the joy and love of the sweet bride and groom. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a couple more excited to be getting married.

One of my favorite parts of Emily and Ian’s day was their first look. There were a few tears shed out of their immense love for each other, and they decided to read their vows to each other privately during their first look. I LOVE that this traditional of private vows during the first look is becoming more and more popular. I find it to be such a special, emotional, and intimate part of the day. I always stand far enough away from the couple that I can’t hear them, and it really is just a special moment between the two of them before the whirlwind of the day begins.

Emily and Ian were one of the most laid back and joy filled couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. The moments they shared between the two of them and among their family and friends made for such a touching ceremony and reception.

Emily and Ian, it was SUCH an honor to be your wedding photographer! Enjoy these sneak peaks while I finish editing your full wedding gallery!
